Light Origami invites viewers to explore reality by entering a giant 3D kaleidoscope. The domed structure is bathed in light and constructed using over 320 origami shapes made from mirrored panels to show what light can look like when folded like paper. Changing spectrums of light are projected within the space, mirrored in the facets of the space while creating an entrancing kaleidoscope of light.

Light Origami was first commissioned by Destination New South Wales for Vivid Sydney 2015.

Light Origami is a featured installation at WAVE: Light + Water + Sound, an exhibition of cutting-edge works of contemporary public art presented from June 2–5, 2016. The free four-night festival features interactive artworks, temporary installations and performances in and around the Blue River Plaza in downtown Breckenridge, transforming the river, bridges and waterfront area into outdoor canvases, stages and exhibition spaces.

Presented by Breckenridge Creative Arts, in partnership with the Breckenridge Tourism Office.
